I hadn't been to many metal shows before Missing Link so I didn't really understand the gravity of Baroness' set then. Like, I loved every second of it at the time, but I only realized just how flawless and stunning it was after the fact. It's definitely gonna be one of those things where I tell people ten years from now, "Yeah, I saw Baroness on the Blue Record tour and they were fuckin' amazing."
On that tour, Baizley was filling in for Bill on some shows because Bill had some pancreas disease or something, so I think that's how the him replacing Brent idea came about.
